I can't imagine what the reaction would've been like had Miami blown a 17-point lead last night, but LeBron James sank two huge free-throws with 7.1 seconds remaining to seal the Heat's 100-96 Game 2 win. (Of course, Miami was helped by a no-foul call on Kevin Durant, but bad refereeing is part of the NBA.) Not only was the game a thriller, it also brought us a classic missed high-five by Chris Bosh, more outstanding fashion from Thunder guard Russell Westbrook and Dwyane Wade asking a reporter if he could have his tie.
Hat Trick
Kings goalie Jonathan Quick spiced things up at the team's Stanley Cup rally yesterday by saying the f-word THREE times on live TV. The interruption by the anchor to apologize for Quick's potty mouth is truly priceless. Meanwhile, the Kings, according to their Twitter feed, got a kick out of Quick's colorful language.
Couldn't Curb His Enthusiasm
Curb Your Enthusiasm's Jeff Garlin sang Take Me Out To The Ballgame at Wrigley Field yesterday. He decided to ad-lib at the end, telling Tigers fans they suck. Garlin also joined the Cubs' broadcasters during the game and expressed his wish that outfielder Alfonso Soriano get traded. On a side note, I saw Garlin do stand-up last summer. If you have a chance to see him, RUN to get tickets. He does a hell of a show, with the majority of it being him riffing on and with the audience.

Diamondbacks announcer Mark Grace casually said that outfielder Jason Kubel would homer during an at-bat yesterday. Immediately following Grace's words, Kubel homered.
